There Is A Tour de France For Toddlers

Ian Dille wrote about the world’s premiere racing event for toddlers:

  • Instead of training wheels, Strider balance bikes eschew pedals. Toddlers run their legs to push the bike forwards.
  • Bike enthusiasts wanting their children to join them in their travels have found that they’re effective in teaching the young how to bike.
  • Kids trained on Strider bikes can switch over to pedaled bikes at ages as young as two, and ride up to 20 miles by the age of three.
  • To further extend its brand the Strider company hosts a World Championship where toddlers race.
  • Japan typically sweeps the medals.
